Sophie Update

It’s not good news. The new, very expensive medication from the compounding pharmacy across town isn’t making any difference so far. We are on day…4? I think. We should have seen some improvement at this point. She’s had massive, watery diarrhea in the night two out of the last four nights, which is a move in the wrong direction. She had been able to somewhat control it and do it outside for the last couple of weeks. Bless her heart, she does try to put it on the giant potty pads covering the floor, but, yeah. Life is just gross now.

She can’t make it up and down the stairs (I live in a 2nd floor condo). She doesn’t enjoy walks. Taking her out is a chore for both of us. I carry her down the stairs and she is utterly disinterested in the outside world. She’s completely blind and I’m not sure how her other senses are faring. She sleeps 23 hours a day. I’m not sure I’m doing her any favors fighting this battle much longer. I’ll give the fancy new antibiotic the full two weeks, but I’m not feeling hopeful.

  1. It’s so frustrating. I look for every small sign of improvement, and she has moments of asking for treats and being almost herself, but it never lasts. I don’t want to give up on her, but we are running out of options.

  2. You are a trouper! I’ve been there with dogs and cats, it is hard! I know that deep down Sophie appreciates you and your efforts (possibly on some cosmic level). I was hoping that the antibiotics would help!
